A Donohue, built for a bike shop in the north that sadly no longer trades, it is actually for sale on here and has been for some time.

Sadly the Campag saddle was sold separately... :cry:

To be fair, the complete group is worth an offer, but to split it would be a crying shame.

especially given its lineage.

Just needs a loving home as it is... 8)

That is bloody lovely, damn you for posting that link.
Would Donahue really have built frames for small bike shops? It does look high quality
Someone has put a nice spec on that, very nice bike

It is lovely, and Original. And yes he certainly did, and for many others too including Orange, the signature tell for me with this one is the rear wishbone, the cable guide, the internal cable routing etc. even where and how its stamped, then check out the embossed seat tube. All the ingredients are present.

go on give it a home, I suspect he would love a cheeky offer... 8)

That is a beauty....I would always feel happy buying an mtb with road style pedals and a close ratio cassette....a sure guarantee it hasn't been nailed off road....I really feel the need for some Italian stuff in my life now 8)

The guy asked for an offer of £695 and didn't get it. :shock:

Too rare a beast for me, I'd be frightened of getting the paint dirty.
